Strengthen Liquor Licensing

Strengthen Liquor Licensing

Savannah is facing a crisis. Our weak liquor licensing laws allow package stores to blight our community and serve as epicenters of exploitation aimed at our most vulnerable neighbors. The legislature has to work to make our communities more livable, and less...

Expand Medicaid

Expand Medicaid

It is imperative that Georgia fully expands Medicaid, and we must do it now. I support the immediate expansion of Medicaid. Our state is filled with hundreds of thousands of people who are unable to afford healthcare because they make too much to qualify for Medicaid,...

Repeal Right to Work

Repeal Right to Work

Empowering unions to fight for our rights and empowering citizens to live their dreams by raising the minimum wage. Our city has a problem, a quarter of our citizens live in poverty, and that number jumps up to almost half among children under the age of 18. The...

Decriminalize Marijuana

Decriminalize Marijuana

I support the decriminalization of marijuana and the removal of mandatory minimums. It’s good policy, good business, and good for people. It is time to end the War on Drugs. Finally, I support the decriminalization of marijuana possession and the retroactive...

Ban the Box

Ban the Box

I support “banning the box” so that prospective employers cannot automatically reject the applications of ex-convicts. One of the hardest parts of starting your new life after prison is finding an employer. It is hard enough after being out of practice for any...

Restore Voting Rights for Ex-felons

Restore Voting Rights for Ex-felons

If you have served your time, your debt is paid. I will sponsor a constitutional amendment to return the right to vote to citizens who have served their time. As your representative, I will sponsor a constitutional amendment to give ex-felons the right to vote. Prison...

End Private Prisons

End Private Prisons

Private prisons are a stain on our national identity. It is morally wrong for someone to make money off of the punishment and perpetual imprisonment of others. Georgia’s private prisons must be closed immediately. Though Georgia has made strides in recent years...

Education

Restructure and Fully Fund QBE

Restructure and Fully Fund QBE

The Quality Basic Education formula is out of date and state funding is insufficient for the needs of Georgia’s students. Reform is not enough, we must restart. As your representative, I will lead the charge to restructure Quality Basic Education (QBE). Currently, QBE...

Invest in Post-secondary Education

Invest in Post-secondary Education

Post-secondary education increases economic opportunity and personal achievement. Trade school and community college should be free for all Georgians. I am committed to enacting legislation that will make it easier for children to attend college or trade schools. To...

Institute Wraparound Services

Institute Wraparound Services

I will fight for comprehensive wraparound programs to nurture the holistic health and well-being of all our children. This new QBE formula must also fund after school programs for our kids. When we think about breaking the poverty cycle, we must tackle the unfortunate...

Eliminate Private School Vouchers

Eliminate Private School Vouchers

We cannot allow the elites in this state to funnel money out of the public school systems and into their own pockets. We live in a society that understands that educating every child is a social good; I oppose any form of school vouchers. I am fundamentally opposed to...

Increase Teacher Pay

Increase Teacher Pay

Pay teachers what they deserve for their expertise and dedication. In Georgia, teachers earn only 69% of what their peers can expect in other fields requiring comparable qualifications. At the very minimum, we must meet the national average and offer a starting salary...

Gun Reform

Gun Reform

Gun Reform

In order to keep our citizens safe I would like to introduce policy which will institute red flag laws so guns can be confiscated by court order permanently or temporarily, depending on the nature of the crime. Every gun purchase should have a seven-day waiting...

Environment

I would like to see Georgia move 100% to green energy by 2050.  We need to conduct a long term state feasibility study for coastal communities.  This would bring State dollars into Savannah to raise highway 80 to prevent future flooding issues. Additionally, we have...
